12:9   For these words are secret and sealed to the time of the end

Generations of commentators have offered interpretations of the various visions in Sefer Daniel. Many different opinions have been suggested with regard to the specific events foretold in these prophesies. These distinct opinions do not contradict each other, however, because Daniel’s visions are deliberately vague, and hence, they can be fulfilled in numerous ways. Only in retrospect will it be possible to match up the visions with their actualization. The way in which they will ultimately be fulfilled in practice will be determined based on the Jewish people’s actions, and their eagerness to return to the Land of Israel. Many possible dates for redemption have passed, but since the People of Israel were not ready, the final redemption has not yet come. At any point, however, they can improve their ways, fully embrace Eretz Yisrael, and return to their homeland, thus bringing about the redemption promised long ago in Sefer Daniel.

  • In this chapter 12 of Daniel I see that the key to discovering the secret to which the book is lies lies in the fact that we know for certain when the terrible abomination established began, and then we determine the 1290 and the 1335 days.
